Female followers of Dionysus the Greek God of Wine (and some other fun things), the Maenads were known to partake in some wine and break into ecstatic dance as part of their rituals.

Turns out our winemaker has been following parts of the Maenad lifestyle realizing it had roots in distant past.  

We obviously aren’t living in the 3rd century BC and there aren’t a lot of “followers” of Dionysus among us these days.  

What we do take away from the Maenads is a lifestyle that celebrates women and wine.  A celebration of all Women everywhere.
